The School of Law fosters and promotes research in all major fields of legal study.
We recognise the growing internationalisation of research agendas in legal, socio-legal, and criminal justice studies.
All year round we run lively programmes of seminars, lectures, workshops and colloquia, host visiting scholars and work with policy makers.
Our strategic focus has been on Global Law and Justice as a unifying theme and a driver for further research development.
